- Visit three top restaurants at the Philips Stadium.
Founded in 1913, the Philips Sports Association used to be the staff association for the Philips electronics company. Later on people from outside the company were admitted as members and it is now one of the best paid football clubs in Holland.
The Philips stadium was built where the very first sports field of the Philips Sport Vereniging used to be. With its perfect grass, excellent lighting system (of course Philips would know about that) and seated stands close to the pitch, it is a beautiful stadium.
In all the Philips stadium seats some 35,000; all of the stands are covered and heated. In addition to football matches, the stadium is also used for congresses, seminars and concerts.
